The Fermi Paradox II - Solutions and Ideas - Where Are All The Aliens?

  • Published: 04 June 2015
  • Where are all the aliens? The universe is too big and too old, why have we not met aliens yet? Do they live in computers? Were they wiped out by an ancient super intelligence? Or are we just to primitive to understand their motives? Whatever the answer is, it is incredibly important for our own future.

                                        If light takes so long to cross the universe then our messages couldn't reach aliens for centuries and our telescopes wouldn't see them for the sane amount of time and there messages would to the same.

                                            What if the aliens put their most primitive organism to see if they could survive in the environment but dinosaurs being a threat and destroyed the dinosaurs and and we thrived and grew up to this. They either watching us closely or they went extinct due to some problem. And we are the sole survivors of that planet.

                                                        Every universe has its own net. It may seem like fiction, but whole worlds where we made certain decisions, and even scarily enough, our ANGRY THOUGHTS, could really exist. We are in a unique world where my OC is having just as much headway into peeking into our universe, as WE humans have with quantum physics. (I sound crazy. But with all of these universe theories going around, I like the infinite universes approach.) One day, my OC may take a peek and scare the heck out of me.

                                                          But my point on topic here is, our universe might just.... be this way. Space travel has been a countering force, and we have discovered things no one could even explain up there in space. It would be nice to discover another livable planet and move there though.

Once we have a complete understanding of it and unify it with general relativity. We will be able to create so many advanced technologies, including a functional warp drive.

Who knows, maybe an alien species might be looking like humans, with 2 hearts, 3 brains, 3 arms and all of them being 8 foot tall minumum.. The power of the universe is too strong and complicated for the human brain to understand.

Water? Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe with oxygen being number three. And since we created radio and it's been going out into space any sufficiently advanced species would know to interpret them and understand what they are. And alien species may just want to wipe us out to prevent any up and comers from displacing them at the top of the food chain one day. There's no reason to presume aliens would be our friends. Imagine your anthropologists have had the earth under observation for a few centuries now. My assessment would be they're far too savage and primitive to be allowed to move out among the starts and I'd recommend annihilation. And you're over complicating how they'd do it. More than likely with would be a targeted bio-chemical attack that would selectively wipe out humanity while leaving everything else in tact. That or some sort of neutron bomb saturation to wipe out biological life only. Doesn't much matter really. We're already into the next extinction level event on this planet. WWIII will occur sometime before 2050. It's pretty much all over but the crying at this point.
